    thank you!
    they should have theyr own ppa for at least a .deb file for easy install, this made it really easy to install! thank you very much!
    but could you please update it for java update 13? this is version 11 :(
    and if you can since this is a ppa we would get it from the ubuntu update center right?
    thank you again!
